“Thinkin’ Inside the Box”  (posted by WhimsyGizmo)
Today, I want you to craft a poem around the word box.
Go dark. Go deep. Or wrap us up something shiny and beautiful, with a great big bow. Put on your boxing gloves and poem like a butterfly, sing like a bee. Give us some Seussian rhyme time (Would you like them in a box? Or with a fox?)

An ox in a box?
I think nox,
said giraffe
cross-wording squares.

Boxer strolled by
with Pom who looked high
as a kite.

A boxing hyena passed
donning gloves and mask.
Threatened to box ears
of donkey drunk on beers.

Hope eyesight clears!

Quadrille #62 – Thinkin’ Inside the Box 


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
